My motivation for losing weight was to not be the "fat friend" any more. Being overweight all my life affected me in so many ways, some of which I didn't even realize until after I had lost the extra pounds. I was always very insecure. No one knew it, but I knew I wasn't as outgoing as I could be.
I tried every diet known to man. My mom put me on my first diet when I was 12 years old. Nothing worked long term for me because it wasn't easy or convenient like the Medifast Meals.
My husband and I decided to lose weight for our family and learned about Medifast through his parents. We've successfully kept a combined 98 pounds off* for years now, and we have never looked back! My family and friends all wanted to know what we were doing to lose weight. I wanted to share my success, I decided to become a Take Shape For Life Health Coach and help others reach their health goals. I was able to get a lot of our loved ones on the same healthy path using the Habits of Health and the wonderful Medifast Meals.
I confidently walk around at the pool in a bathing suit without hiding or feeling uncomfortable. I move around more freely and without feeling tired all the time. I just feel great!
I am so much more comfortable with myself - personally, socially, and professionally. My relationships have all changed so much - for the better.
Results vary. Typical weight loss on the Medifast 5 & 1 PlanŽ is 2-5 lbs per week for the first 2 weeks and 1-2 lbs per week thereafter.
